Email Functions Restored - May 2014

There has recently been an error with the 'Send Invitations' function when creating a new meeting.  This and all other email functions within Adobe Connect Pro have been restored.  

When you are creating a meeting room, if you select an access other than 'Anyone who has the URL for the meeting can enter the room', you will be prompted on the last page to send invitations to participants.

After you have selected individuals to invite to your room, you will be given the opportunity to send invitations and specify which groups you wish to send the invitations.  Adobe Connect Pro will use your email address when sending the email to the participants.  You do not need to be logged into Outlook client for this to work.
